Newsletter 489: 2 x McLaren

2 x McLaren

2 x McLaren
Indeed, our friends!!! McLaren has finally won an F1 award back again after a very long time without reaching the top of the podium. They did it at the Monza Italian Grand Prix and also in the form of a double win: first place for Daniel Ricciardo and second place for Lando Norris. A great victory, both deserved and longed for a long time by his followers.

Hopefully this triumph encourages our beloved manufacturers to release the McLaren MCL35M scale model, and the carbon decals, and the paints, and a detailed book, and... C'mon Tamiya, Fujimi, Model Factory Hiro, start now with the design of the scale model, please!!! :) Hope is the last thing you lose, so we will go on waiting and looking forward to hearing some news soon...

While we dream about the scale model that we hope some day will exist and make it to SpotModel's shelves, we can build Tameo's DFV engine in 1/43 scale, or use the upgrade parts by KMP or the new 3D printed exhaust pipes by Scale Productions, or enjoy some of the photoetched sheet that Studio27 have just reissued :)

From SpotModel here are our congratulations to McLaren, but... in 1/20 scale ;-P
